Re: Aeroflot to GIG and EZE (Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires)?

Transaero announced (not sure if they actually commenced) DME-GIG back in 2010/11 with the 747-400. Previously Aeroflot served Buenos Aires, Lima, Rio, Santiago and Sao Paulo, flown either via Havana or Sal if I'm remembering correctly. The last service was withdrawn around 20 years ago I think - so...

This is very subjective, but I'd suggest it would be the various ACMI carriers, where the public usually don't even realise that aren't being flown by the company they booked with. Especially if it's a damp lease, as the cabin crew are 'on brand'. Often the only distinction is a small logo by the do...
